left. let not your heart be troubled, the news continues, greta standing by to go account on the record," we'll see you tomorrow might. . can you hear me now prove [ring] -- can you hear me now? [ring] greta: in happened at a town hall meeting. she decided to answer her cell phone when somebody was asking a question. the woman who asked the question is also a year. then, what do you want at these town halls -- the woman to ask the question is also here. and could pakistani terrorists beginning their hands on weapons? but first, the town hall protests continue.
10:01pm
>> and it certainly is a -- double, triple, and even quadrupled the premiums. -- quadruple the premiums. >> we will vote you out if you vote for the bill. >> congress should be the first. >> it got a little bit rowdy today. next question, next question, and he did not really answer it. he talked in circles. >> traditionally, people who come to town hall meetings are people who have questions. they may not be representative of america, but they are significant, and their views have to be taken into account.
10:02pm
>> how are we supposed to trust you? i know that is a tough question, but i will make it easy. is there an option to say no to this bill? because it does not seem like you have said anything today. >> it is really not about health-care reform or about insurance reform. it is about government control. >> senator cardin, authority not given to you as a senator. greta: houston, texas, the congresswoman holds a town hall and actually answers herself on as a cancer survivor asks her a question. -- answers to cell phone as a cancer survivor after a question. -- answers her cell phone as a cancer survivor asks her a
10:03pm
question. >> seriously. really, i mean, come on. >> you think this is good for america? when does it stop? greta: tracy miller asked that question, and she joins us. tracy, that video looks absolutely horrible. was there any explanation by the congressman about why that happened? >> i did talk to her later, but not about using the phone. her staff or hey malaise there on the scene were telling her -- her staff or others there on the
10:04pm
scene were telling her things. greta: who was she talking to prove let me stop. did she pick up the telephone in the middle of your question -- who was she talking to? let me stop. >> yes, she did pick up the phone in the middle of the question. i do not know who she was talking to, but it seemed to be someone in the room, because every time she's got on the phone, she would give a shout out to somebody -- every time she got on the phone. greta: did she apologize? >> no, she did not apologize, other afterwards, i talked to her -- although afterwards, i talked to her. greta: did you actually get your question asked and answered by the congresswoman at any time? >> no, my question was not directly answered. she just basically, you know,
10:05pm
made a remark about me having the cancer and that people like me would not be able to afford health insurance and that this bill, she said, would help them. greta: during the time asking the question, it is hard telling from the video, but where people yelling things out? where they saying things -- but were people yelling things out? where they saying things? >> -- where they -- were they? >> yes. greta: did she do it to others? >> yes, she did do that to two others. greta: was anybody unglued by this? it is one thing to make one mistake and move on, but did the crowd get a little rowdy? it is not getting nicer the more times you do it.
10:06pm
>> it did not get any rowdier than what you heard on that video clip. people did make remarks when she did get on the phone, because they thought it was rude. a lady behind me told her that she was being rude, and she turned to her and said, "i am not rude." greta: why did you go to this town hall meeting? >> well, i went to ask some questions i had for the congresswoman, and once i got there and saw her presentation, which she was doing in an effort, she said, to dispel the myths about the health-care bill, i changed my question to the one you just heard. greta: are you now more in favor of it after going to this town
10:07pm
hall meeting? >> nothing has changed. i am not in favor of it. greta: why? >> because i believe that no bureaucracy should be involved in health-care decisions. you know, i had decisions to make for my daughter when she had kidney problems over one year ago, and i like that decision being between me and my doctor and not a bureaucracy, and some of the things with my situation, with the cancer condition i had an with my daughter's birth defects, i believe under the socialized health care that they are providing, it would be rationed, and maybe we would not have been found to have these conditions at all, and we would not have been treated. greta: i do not mean to be flip, but it seems that you may need an apology from the congresswoman, and that you may need a beer summit.
10:08pm
that is unbelievably rude behavior. tracy, good luck. up next, a congressman at a town hall. >> town hall meetings are more about people in public life hearing from people that they serve. greta: congressman pence joins us. what was the demeanor? there have been some oysters ones. what was yours like? -- there have been some boisterous ones. >> it was a little boisterous. it was also about the general direction of the country. we have had four town meetings, and that was before, and they all had record turnouts. -- that was the fourth. there was the government takeover about health care, the launching of a government-run
10:09pm
plants that will cost millions of americans the health insurance that they have -- the launching of a government run- plan. there also takeovers of other areas of the economy, as well. you have a lot of hoosiers coming out, a lot of americans coming out, saying enough is enough. greta: you know, it is interesting to talk about the bailout and the health care and all of the concerns. it is hard, having heard tracy, that she was treated so rudely, that she asked a question of her congresswoman, and the congress woman gets on the phone. i take it you were not on the phone tonight, or were you? >> i did not get any calls, but i will give sheila jackson at least some credit for having a town hall forum. republicans across the country are hosting forums and getting
10:10pm
record turnout, as well be a it is one of the misnomers -- as well. it is one of the misnomers that people are getting turned out. how does that explain the hundreds and hundreds of people turning out at republican town hall meetings? the truth is this is not a political effort. this is really an effort by everyday americans who are sick and tired of government takeover of one area of our economy over another. but they are also concerned, as i said, i records spending, deficits, debt, bailouts -- as i said, record spending. the health-care takeover is really just the last straw, and i think that is what is really bringing out all of these americans and hoosiers to town halls. greta: i like congresswoman sheila jackson, and she will have to dig yourself out of this
10:11pm
one and apologize, and she can do it, but she has got some explaining to do. i will invite her on tomorrow night, and maybe she will come on and do it here. all right. you are a republican, and this bill is democrat. are you in favor of some form of health reform? >> we really are, and everyone of the town hall meetings, i start off by saying we absolutely have to do something -- and at every one of the town hall meetings, i start off by saying we absolutely have to do something. on a nationwide basis instead of just a state-by-state level. we ought to expand medical savings accounts and do serious reform. we can lower the cost of health care. we can lower the cost of health insurance without introducing a massive new government-run insurance plan that will cost millions and set us on the
10:12pm
pathway to socialized medicine. greta: congressman, thank you, sir. coming up, rush limbaugh calls somebody a clown. do you know who it is? and take a look at this video. this is what a democratic congressman just based at a town hall. the congressman goes on the record next -- when a congressman -- what a congressman just faced at a town hall. have you smelled this chair? or these curtains? you've gotta wash this whole room! are you kidding? wash it?! let's wash it with febreze! whoa! [ sniffs ] hey mrs. weber. [ sniffs ] it smells nice in here. i like to keep things fresh. [ male announcer ] for all the things that you can't wash, wash it with febreze. febreze now comes in two fresh new scents -- downy april fresh and gain apple mango tango.
10:13pm
that's a-- tiny netbook. yeah, it's-- good-looking, lightweight. generally awesome. and you could just-- go online, video-chat with my cousin. this is un-- under $200. are you some kind of-- mind reader, visionary ? no, i have them. huh. the new lightweight hp mini netbook with windows and america's largest and most-reliable 3g network built in. only 199.99 with mobile broadband plans from 39.99 i am-- speechless, envious. wanna be me right now. getting one.
10:14pm
the moisturizer in other body washes sits on top of skin. only new dove has nutriummoisture... which can nourish deep down. new dove body wash with nutriummoisture. superior natural nourishment for your skin. greta: philadelphia, pennsylvania. a town hall. >> will you enroll you in your family in any public auction and forgo the congressional option you have now? -- in any public option? >> i do believe in my heart that single payer is the best thing
10:15pm
for quality health care. [cheers and applause] >> i want the insurance i have because i picked it. i picked it. it covers me. it covers my wife. it covers my daughter. and i picked it. how can you tell me that the private options will stay in place when my employer with 29,000 employees can just turn around tomorrow and say, "we are writing off the bottom line. you all can go to the public option." greta: the health-care plan is not particularly popular in pennsylvania. and you rasmussen poll shows that only 42% bear -- a new rasmussen poll shows that only 42% -- they are passionate, are they not? >> they are. you know, in the middle of a savage recession, how can you not have anxiety for a government that over the last 10
10:16pm
years has not been very accountable? so it was a great session. greta: your leadership and the house. where you say it is un-american to be out there -- your leadership in the house. >> all i saw in the public today were americans. i had the opportunity to go across pennsylvania, and i have found whether you are a democrat, republican, not registered, independent that there is anxiety out there. how can you not be? we are in a savage recession, and you have lost your job or are about to. if there was ever a time to put principle over politics, it is now. all they want to do is talk to you and to hear and listen. that is what leaders are supposed to do, grab a hold of the anxiety at the moment, and we should be judged by the size of the problems we are tackling.
10:17pm
i am more convinced than ever that we are doing the right thing with the house bill, and i just hope that people come back, having listened. we are on the right path. i spoke about facts tonight, and i thought they had a great conversation with me, and i sure loved it. i am a servant, a public service, and that is what tonight was about. -- a public servant, and that is what tonight was about. greta: do you vote the way you want, or do you vote the way your constituents want? and if you do not vote the way your constituents want, is that political suicide? >> we are not a democracy. you know that, greta. we are a representative democracy, so you just do not have everybody pushing a button.
10:18pm
we have a deliberation. we discussed it, and we listen, and if, after a while -- we discuss it. you will not be reelected. i have 31 years in the u.s. military. i got out after my daughter had a brain tumor. i got into politics to pay back, and everyone should have the opportunity she had under the tricare system. i believe that you just cannot sit there and say, well, 53%, when the economics of this also says that america loses money every year because of the uninsured. we have got to compete with china, and the right health-care conform -- reform will help us do that. greta: do you agree with senator arlen specter on the health care, exactly? >> is hard for me to understand where arlen is on health care,
10:19pm
really. my position is a health-care bill that i helped shepherd through my committee on the house side. i respect the man. but he derailed the clinton health-care plan in 1995, in 1994, and the congressional budget office had actually said it would decrease premiums and would save more money in our budget, so over the last 15 years, nothing has been done to accept to have 120% of the increase in premiums and many lose their health insurance -- nothing has been done except to have 120% of an increase in premiums and many losing their health insurance. greta: thank you, sir. up next, who is rush limbaugh calling a clown? rush limbaugh is coming up. plus, there is political intrigue in washington. there are stories circulating
10:20pm

10:22pm
[captioning made possible by fox news channel] captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- greta: rush limbaugh is crystal clear. he is not taking any prisoners, and he loves the town hall
10:23pm
protests. >> if we do not say we want to change it -- we are trying to save it. a full-fledged onslaught. by virtue of votes in the house and senate, it cannot be stopped, so what are we supposed to do with town hall meetings? what is the purpose of the town hall meeting? is it because politicians can come down from on high and say what they are doing? or is the purpose of a town hall meeting to hear some constituents? we do not need to go to a town hall meeting and have a report from these clowns about what they are doing. it is for them to hear us. greta: well, we now know what rush limbaugh thinks. coming up, you'll hear what senator rick santorum thinks. but first, senator santorum is heading to iowa. he joins us.
10:24pm
i love iowa, but it does not have beaches, no mountains are climbing, no disney world to take the family. there is only one reason people go to iowa, so what is up? you are going to iowa. >> do not being dissing i know i was so much. greta: i said i love iowa. >> wisconsin is neighboring iowa. look. i was invited out by the american future funds, and they asked me to come out and give a speech, so i reached out -- by the american future fund. i am speaking. yes, i went to iowa because i am very concerned about what is going on in america right now, and as you know, i come here on fox, go on the radio, and i write, and when you go and give a speech in iowa, people pay
10:25pm
attention to what you are doing, and that is what i hope to accomplish. greta: i wrote down in the notes. is what you said code for that you are considering 2012? >> i am worried about 2009. this is a very critical time, greta. the reason you are seeing a deep passion -- this is called a transition -- the reason you are seeing this passion is because people are very concerned about not just their pocketbook. -- the reason you are seeing the passion -- this is called the transition. they believe something is foundational in going on in washington to rob america -- they believe something is foundational lly going on in washington. i think a lot of people are stepping up to the plate and
10:26pm
trying to get involved to make a difference. greta: do you give members on both side of the i accredit -- both sides of the ideal credit? what about the ones -- do you give members on both sides of the aisle credit? >> i think you have said malaise -- u.s. seen most of the democrats stand up and take it, and not say things that are in temperate -- intemperate. i think many will come back from those town hall meetings and say that there is something real going on out here, and if we do not pay attention to this, it will be to our peril, not just in 2010. greta: you are from pennsylvania, obviously, and i do not need to tell you that.
10:27pm
the number of opposed in pennsylvania. if members go back to congress with those types of numbers opposed to them, is this a huge risk? >> it is a huge risk. joe sestak almost got it right. we are a republic. yes, we owe the people of pennsylvania -- i did 12 years as a senator -- our best judgment. that does not mean we ignore their judgment. that means you have to take into consideration what is going on across america, and your judgment could impact lives and impact this country, and i think that you have to get the sense that the direction that the house is going right now, and the senate may be going, could be very disruptive to americans, not just a handful of folks at town meetings, but disruptive to america as we know it, and they had better think about what they are doing. greta: ok, senator santorum,
10:28pm
thank you. i love iowa. i am always suspicious though when you guys got out there. >> thank you, greta. greta: up next, terrorists have made horrible threats that they want to get nuclear weapons. former secretary of state henry kissinger will be here. it's what doct most for headaches. for arthritis pain... in your hands... knees... and back. for little bodies with fevers..
10:29pm
and big bodies on high blood pressure medicine. tylenol works with your body... in a way other pain relievers don't... so you feel better... knowing doctors recommend tylenol... more than any other brand of pain reliever. are more than words here. it's personal. i have diabetes. rodney's kid too. so we're so proud to manufacture... the accu-chek® aviva meters and test strips...
10:30pm
here in the u.s.a. plus, we've proven you'll waste 50% fewer strips... when you use our meter, which means greater savings... for people with diabetes, like me. now that's a true american value. accu-chek® aviva. born in the u.s.a. you all want to run your businesses more efficiently, so we've brought in a team of experts to help. one suggestion is to make your shipping more efficient with priority mail flat rate boxes from the postal service. call or go online for a free supply and up to $160 in offers from authorized postage vendors. shipping's a hassle! weighing every box... actually, with flat rate boxes you don't need to weigh anything under 70 pounds. if it fits, it ships for a low flat rate. ok, but i ship all over the country. you can ship anywhere in the country for a low flat rate. ship international, too. yes, but i ship hundreds of things, in all sizes. great, because flat rate boxes come in
10:31pm
four sizes. call and we'll send a free supply, plus up to $160 in offers. when you're ready to ship, we'll even pick them up for free, no matter how many you have. priority mail flat rate boxes only from the postal service. a simpler way to ship. call or go online now to get started. greta: there is alarming new information about pakistan and its nuclear arsenal. according to a research group, there have been at least three attacks, and the article warns about the threat of nuclear weapons ending up in the hands of terrorists and that it is real. , are we doing enough? former secretary of state henry kissinger joins us -- it is real. are we doing enough? should we be concerned that the nuclear arsenal in pakistan will get into the hands of islamic
10:32pm
extremists or the taliban? >> i think it is certainly a matter of concern of any nuclear weapons falling into the hands of extremists, especially in pakistan, where there is a very active jihadist movement. i have seen no evidence that would question that pakistan has a under firm control, but it is an issue that should concern -- has it under firm control, but it is an issue that should concern us and any other country that could be affected by a nuclear attack from terrorists. greta: besides the fact that they have got so much turmoil in pakistan, it includes the fact that the military is in charge of protecting it, and it is hard for us to think the military is not somewhat sympathetic -- some of the military -- sympathetic
10:33pm
to the extremists and anti- western. am i wrong? >> some elements in the military might well be sympathetic to extremists. on the other hand, the military in pakistan are the best organized and in many respects the most difficult -- disciplined group, and if i had to bet between the military and other security forces, i would rely more on the military, but there are elements in the military that have been encouraging to the taliban, especially inside of one area. greta: and i guess the other thing that sort of alarms me is that there is a history in pakistan. you have got a.q. khan, who is the father of nuclear technology in pakistan, who was arrested, confessed to being essentially the wal-mart of
10:34pm
nuclear technology to iran, libya, and north korea, and then he got, after confessing, he gets hardened by the -- pardoned by the president musharraf, and even now, he has been released, so the political structure seems to look the other way. >> what you say is absolutely true, but we have two challenges in pakistan. one is the challenge you described. the second is the importance that pakistan has in the fight in afghanistan, and what we're trying to do apparently is to walk a narrow path within that, but what we will have to do sooner or later, and maybe we are doing it already, is to have some quiet conversations with other countries that might be affected by jihadists' access to nuclear weapons in the region,
10:35pm
and many of pakistan's neighbors are in that position, but we also, of course, would like to maintain the cooperation of pakistan and increase it in afghanistan. so it is a tough road that we have to walk. greta: indeed. you speak of pakistan's neighbors, and i think of india. what do you make of india's stopping that ship? all we know right now is that they found, like, 60,000 pounds of sugar. they are still looking at it, but what do you make of india stopping that north korean ship? >> india is imposing the security council resolution, and i think it is a very positive sign. india has been very cooperative with us, and they had very many parallel interests with respect -- they have a very many parallel interests with respect to terrorism and with respect to the nuclear danger -- they have
10:36pm
very many parallel interests. greta: am i wrong to be suspicious that north korea might have been being a little coy? because sending that ship off in the direction that they did, knowing that someone was likely to stop it, and having 16,000 tons of sugar sort of makes the stopping country look, well, wrong, for one. >> nobody knows what the north koreans have on the ships. if north korea, a country that has no significant economy, that has no close relations with any other country in the economic field, if they can get away with defying the security council, the united states, china, japan, and russia, and south korea, and
10:37pm
establish a nuclear arsenal, why would any other country, especially countries like iran, have any respect for what these resolutions might be? that is the key issue. we have no quarrel with north korea, as such, but if north korea becomes a nuclear country, in the face of all of these obstacles, then we are going to have a great challenge, and the pakistan issue that we started with is an aspect of this whole issue, because if nuclear- weapons spread around the world, some unauthorized use sooner or later is going to happen, and then we're going to see suffering far exceeding anything we have seen up until now. greta: secretary kissinger,
10:38pm
always nice to see you. thank you, sir. here is a look at what is coming up after the show on "the o'reilly factor." bill: greta, does the obama administration wants a war with fox news? it seems that way sometimes. -- does the obama administration what a war? greta:-- want a war with fox ne? greta: i would not want a fight. and when you hear this, you accuse us of my a, a package you will not believe this could happen. stick around, you will find that -- you may accuse us of lying, because you will not believe this could happen.
10:39pm
10:40pm
10:41pm
finally, good news for people with type 2 diabetes or at risk for diabetes. introducing new nutrisystem d, the clinically tested program for losing weight and reducing blood sugar. hi i'm mike, and i lost 100 pounds on nutrisystem d when i was first diagnosed with diabetes, that first step was more like a giant leap. till i discovered nutrisystem d. in a clinical study people on nutrisystem d lost 16 times more weight and reduced their blood sugar 5 times more than those on a hospital-directed plan. plus a1c was reduced .9%. choose from over 140 menu options, there is no counting carbs, calories or points. i lost 100 lbs. and lowered my blood sugar level. nutrisystem d changed my life. mike is one of many who have lost weight and controlled their diabetes with new nutrisystem d. backed by 35 years of research and low glycemic index science nutrisystem d works. satisfaction guaranteed or your money back! new! nutrisystem d.
10:42pm
lose weight. live better. call or click today. greta: there is so much more "on the record" ahead, but first, we go to ainsley earhardt in our new york newsroom. >> taliban forces in southern afghanistan. marines and afghan allies are facing heavy fire in one area and the surrounding mountains. the militants have controlled the area for years. the u.s. wants them out so that villagers can vote in next week's presidential election. also, a new study out concerning breast cancer survivors says that women following its strength program can cut their risk of painful flareups -- following a string program. -- a string program.
10:43pm
in the past, survivors were advised not to lift anything heavier than a purse -- a strength program. we now return to "on the record with greta van susteren." thanks for watching the fox news channel. greta: "the wall street journal" just surveyed economists, and 27 say the recession has ended. joining us is steve moore, a senior writer for "the wall street journal" editorial page. can we talk about the new ceo for aig? he just got tired last week, and what is he going to do? because i want you to tell the viewers what he is going to do -- he just got hired last week. i do not want them to be mad at me. >> i do not know all of the full details of it, but, essentially, he just started the job last
10:44pm
week, and now he is going to go on vacation to croatia. apparently, he had this vacation planned for many months before taking the job. i think there is a little insensitivity here. greta: a little? a little? they could have hired him next week. he could have held the job for a week. we bailed them out to the tune of $180 billion, aig, or whatever the extraordinary numbers were. could he not have -- if he insisted on going on vacation, would it have made more sense to hire him one week later? instead, all of the unemployed americans, everybody who pitched in to bail out this company and the ceo -- and he is not even taking an american vacation. he is going to croatia. >> it speaks to the fact that a lot of these ceo's in these companies are somewhat
10:45pm
politically tone deaf. i am talking about the ones who took taxpayer dollars. there is still a rage about how they mistreated not just taxpayers but shareholders. you are right. this is a time when many americans cannot afford to be taking vacations, especially overseas, and it seems to me that these guys should buy a v owel here and be more sensitive. greta: i do not get it. but, anyway. the recession. the technical, economic and definition -- the recession may be over, but if you are unemployed and are one of the nine. 5% of americans who want a job and cannot get one, i bet you do not feel that way -- if you're unemployed and are one of the 9.5% of americans who want a job and cannot get one, i bet you do
10:46pm
not feel that way. >> sure, there were less jobs lost than the previous month, but there are millions of americans who do not have jobs, and, by the way, you have to add another 8 million americans who either cannot find work or that have become so discouraged they are not looking for jobs now. 1/6 americans are in that category, discouraged workers, part-time workers, where they do not have a job at all, and i find it hard to believe -- or they do not have a job at all, and i find it hard to believe that they would say this recession is over. greta: the 443,000 jobs lost in june is now down to about 250,000 in july. it becomes good news when we do not lose as much as we did before, and i guess if we can be enthusiastic so the people go out and think it is over, that is good because people are consuming and spending, and we have got to get this thing
10:47pm
rolling rather than the sort of doom and gloom. >> another thing i have to say, greta, when you look at the health-care bill that you and talking about in earlier segments of the show, one of the ways this bill is paid for is on the backs of small businesses, and there is an employment tax. every time they hire a new worker, they have to pay a tax of 8%. my goodness. at a time when we have record- high unemployment, why in the world, would you want to put more taxes on the businesses that create the jobs when we have 9.5% unemployment? let's not do that until we get the jobs back. greta: well, i think that the members of congress are getting an earful when they are home, at least a number of them, on this health-care bill. >> i hope they are. greta: i just want them to read it, understand it, and write it in plain language, so people know how to implement it.
10:48pm
judges will have to interpreted, and then we will have to call them activist judges -- judges will have to interpret it. >> there was the woman you had on from houston earlier, and she is very representative, greta. i am glad that you had her on. she is a housewife. she cares about her country. she is not wearing a swastika. she just cares about her country, and millions of americans are outraged and are going to these town-hall meetings. i think it is great to see people active politically. greta: i have got to go, steve. see you back in washington said. up next, steve's favorites segment, the best of the rest -- see you back in washington soon. up next, steve is a favorite segment -- steve's favorite
10:49pm
segment.
10:50pm
10:51pm
10:52pm
greta: you have seen our top stories, but here is the best of the rest. finally, the answer to the winter extra pound or two. we have the answer. it is causing a scene in france. it has been banned from a local swimming pool.
10:53pm
